Bibliographic information


"Although privilege is rarely perceived by those who occupy positions of privilege, it acts in destructive ways. Not only does it destroy relationships with other people, it also destroys relationship with God and prevents us from becoming fully human. In Constructing Solidarity for a Liberative Ethic, Tammerie Day develops helpful strategies for transforming privilege into solidarity, and disparity into justice." - Joerg Rieger, Wendland-Cook Professor of Constructive Theology, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University

"Tammerie Day's book offers a much needed addition to theological and ethical reflections on the category of race, which too often is seen as relevant exclusively to people of color. She argues persuasively that race and power impact everyone, advocating for all of us to engage in the work of racial justice." - Michelle A. Gonzalez, Associate Professor of Religious Studies, University of Miami

"Day tackles white racism head-on and invites white Christians to join her in anti-racist work that promises to yield deep joy. This book is a veritable 'how-to' guide that offers rich resources for individuals, congregations, classrooms, and institutions seeking to interrogate and move beyond the racist confines of contemporary society." - Rebecca Todd Peters, Associate Professor and Chair, Department of Religious Studies, Elon University
